Cáceres is a town of 91,606 individuals in the region of Extremadura, in the west of Spain. The city was formally established by Romans during their conquest of the Iberian peninsula; however, archaeological evidence shows that humans have lived in the area for over 4,000 years. Those visiting Cáceres behold a combination of Roman, Islamic, Gothic, and Italian Renaissance architecture that forms one of the most eclectic urban landscapes in Spain. The old center of the city is almost completely preserved from the Middle Ages. Because of the city's picturesque appearance, many European movies were filmed there.
